Did you know that most theaters and stadiums in the U.S. have really straight-forward, easy-to-understand, equitable policies for plus-size guests who need a little extra room?
But you know what else is true? A MICROSCOPIC NUMBER of theaters publish these policies on their websites. They gatekeep this info. You have to know you can ask for it. And then you have to call them. And navigate phone trees. It’s really inefficient.
I don’t know why it’s this way, but I want to change it. Kate Schultz, an amazing AllGo volunteer is leading a national effort to collect and publish this information. But she can’t do it alone.
We’re looking for 5-10 volunteers to start cataloging this information and more on 100 of the largest venues all across the United States. Our goal is to collect this data on every venue that seats more than 25,000 people in the U.S.
